If you've been thinking about joining Costco Wholesale, now is the perfect time. That's because Costco is offering a new membership promotion: Sign up online as a new member atcostco.comand sign up for the automatic renewal of your annual subscription and you will receive a $30 Digital Costco Shop Card. Be sure to enter code CJPROMO at checkout.

Costco subscriptions are not for sale, and when Costco offers a promotion for new members, it's rarely as good as this one. That's why we think you can take advantage of this ASAP: It's like getting your Costco subscription for half the price.

Why join Costco?

I absolutely love itCostco - I have been a member for 23 years. I do most of my household shopping there. It's my go-to store for paper towels, garbage bags, washing powder, and all those other household essentials I don't want to buy regularly at the grocery store. It's also where I buy groceries like milk, coffee, and eggs (they're a lot cheaper at Costco than the local grocery store). Costco is also a great place to stock up on wine. I recommend boxed wine from the Kirkland Signature brand - it's the perfect combination of high quality and low price.

I also make sure to get a roast chicken for $4.99 when I'm at Costco. It makes a great appetizer for dinner, and has enough left over to make sandwiches or chicken salad the next day. And the price is unbeatable: you pay much more buying a whole chicken to roast at home.

Costco is a great place to find housewares, furniture, small appliances, bedding, and more. Costco also offers extended warranties on electronics at no extra cost and has a much friendlier return policy than Best Buy and other retailers.

When I need gas, I stop at the gas station connected to my local grocery store. The price there is typically 15 to 40 cents less per gallon than at nearby stations. (Don't let the long lines put you off: Most Costco gas stations have more pumps than the average gas station. The lines move quickly.)

And of course, every time I visit Costco, I stop by the in-store cafe. It's hard to go wrong with the $1.50 hot dog and drink combo. Give it a try next time you visit. And keep an eye out for the new $9.99 Roast Beef Sandwich, the latest addition to Costco's food court.

Why I love Costco:

  • It has all the essential groceries I need at a great price.
  • Costco is a great place to find new snacks and treats, including local favorites.
  • Costco maintains high standards of quality, especially when it comes to its own Kirkland Signature brand.

My recommendation:Upgrade to a Costco Executive Membership

If you want to take your Costco savings to the next level, I recommend upgrading to a Costco Executive membership. It costs an additional $60 per year over a standard membership, but you get a 2% discount on your annual Costco purchases, including vacations purchased through Costco Travel. The 2% annual reward will be sent with the renewal notice two months prior to the renewal date.

Why I Love Costco Executive Membership:

  • If you spend more than $3,000 a year at Costco, the upgrade will pay for itself.
  • If you don't save money with a Costco Executive subscription, you can request a downgrade and refund at any time.

Is Costco better than Sam's Club?

Here's a tough question for you: which warehouse club is the best?

For most people the answer will be simple. Since both warehouse clubs offer similar products at similar prices, the best warehouse club is probably the one closest to your home and the easiest to visit. But what if you have Costco and Sam's Club near you?

For me, Costco is the best store. It's cheaper to join now (after taking that into account).this $30 Costco Shop Card deal). Also, I prefer the quality of Costco's Kirkland Signature brand.
